its a lot of work but the bucket idea works well. and you can jab the hose all the way down in the bucket and churn with your hand. thats kinda fluidised.

its never bothered me to wash sand.

I'll start washing the sand later today. And will upload pics then of sand and hopefully the start of the rock scape.
